Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan — The American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) released its 2014 Legal Profession Reform Index (LPRI) for the Kyrgyz Republic Volume II during an event today at the Ak-Keme Hotel in Bishkek. The Kyrgyzstan LPRI, based on an innovative tool created by ABA ROLI, assesses the development of the legal profession in emerging democratic and transitioning states, based on international standards for an independent, ethical, and effective legal profession. The LPRI is published by ABA ROLI, with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and is distributed free of charge.

Beginning with country background, including its historical and legal context and conditions of the defense advocate legal profession in Kyrgyzstan, the LPRI provides benchmarks in such critical areas as qualifications; professional freedoms and guarantees; legal services; conditions and standards of practice; professional associations; and interaction with representatives of other areas of the justice sector, including law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges.
